The Process of Shipping a Classic Car

Any customer that calls in asking about shipping services for a classic car is often encouraged to purchase enclosed transport services. This method of transport offers more protection. The vehicle will be placed within a large shift resistant carrier where it is secured for transport. The thick metal walls of the shipping container protect the classic car from bad weather, poor road conditions, vandalism and theft.

There are ways that you can help assure the safety of your vehicle as it’s in the hands of the transport company. By preparing according to the transporter’s standards, you’re keeping your car and anyone shipping it, safer. This makes sure that the process of shipping goes along much smoother.

  • Wash the car and cleanout the interior. Try to have the vehicle looking its absolute best before it is given to the transport company for the shipping process.
  • Remove anything in or outside of the classic car that may be of value. This may include DVD players, GPS systems, personal items, etc.
  • Make sure the fuel tank is only ¼ full. All other fluids should be filled.
  • Check the tire pressure and possibly take the vehicle in to a mechanic for a tune up and any minor repairs before the transport.
  • Take pictures of your classic car’s exterior and interior. Remember any markings the vehicle may suffer from so you can make sure there aren’t any new ones after the car’s delivery is complete.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
